    In response, the three-year-old boy reaches out with tiny hands for the marijuana and repeatedly says "weed".

    Ashley and Ronnie Shirley weren't expecting to make any additions to their family, they already had three beautiful children. But when Ashley took a pregnancy test in late 2015, they knew God had a different plan. As Ashley tells KTHV, the beginning of her pregnancy went seemingly well. At her twenty-week ultrasound, however, everything took a turn for the worse. The Shirleys were referred to a high risk doctor who diagnosed their unborn daughter with skeletal dysplasia. Not only were her arms and legs measuring small — three to four weeks behind what they should have been — but her...

    The Sheridan millage tax increase scheduled on September 20th of 3.8 Mills will transfer $30,500,000 from already overtaxed private sector to public sector bureaucrats. The Clarksville Millage Tax of 4.8 Mills would cost taxpayers $19,000,000. The Hot Springs Millage Tax Increase would add $54,000,000 on top of a $50 million sales tax increase passed June 28th 2016. The Wonderview School District Millage Tax would be $12,300,000. A grand total of $115,500,000 in tax increases will be voted on Tuesday September 20th! This money will go towards a Public Education System that is plagued with leftist indoctrination, gender politics, unsecure gun...

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Reuters) - Rats have been evicted from the Arkansas governor's mansion but the lingering effects of a rodent infestation, including noxious odors, require its study to be demolished and rebuilt, officials said this week. The rodents, in a non-partisan manner, have been a problem for former Governor Mike Beebe, a Democrat who served from 2007 to 2015, and for current Governor Asa Hutchinson, a Republican who has served since then. "You can walk in (the study) today and still smell the rat stench. It looks fine, but it's hideous smelling," current first lady Susan Hutchinson told a...

    washington examiner ^ | September 7, 2016
    The heirs of late Walmart founder Sam Walton are backing Hillary Clinton for president. Collectively, the leading members of Arkansas' Walton family have given about $714,000 to the candidate and the Democratic Party during the current election cycle, federal records show. The donations are an example of the longstanding ties between the Walton and Clinton families. It is an awkward situation for the candidate, a former Walmart board member, since most of her allies in organized labor and the broader liberal movement detest the Waltons, mainly because of the company's anti-union stance.

Sanders supporters had hoped the party's official position statement for 2016 would include language explicitly rejecting the Trans-Pacific Partnership, while backers of Hillary Clinton, the presumptive nominee, argued for softer language. Both presidential candidates oppose the controversial trade agreement, but it was championed by President Barack Obama, leaving the party in an awkward position.

    The Republican National Committee is taking full advantage of FBI Director James Comey's announcement on Tuesday about Hillary Clinton's classified email scandal, even though she won't likely face prosecution. In a scathing video ad titled 'Tale of Two Press Conferences,' the GOP plays side-by-side excerpts from Comey's statement and a March 10, 2015 press conference when Clinton was first cornered with accusations about her private email server. The result is a smackdown that casts Clinton as a bald-faced liar.

    A long profile on Hillary Clinton in the Washington Post earlier this week highlights (the 2011 Libyan intervention) as a key indicator of her approach to foreign policy. Clinton claims that the Libyan bombing campaign was an example of “smart power at its best.” If she actually believes that, it raises serious questions about her judgment, as well as about her ability to analyze foreign policy dispassionately and with the best interests of the United States at heart. If Clinton is willing to point to Libya as a “signature moment in her four-year tenure” as secretary of state, as the...

    Which begs the question: Who is he going to pick as his vice presidential nominee? The short answer: No one knows. Trump relishes being unpredictable so trying to game out how this most unconventional of politicians will make his mind up is a bit of a guessing game. Add to that the fact that Trump's inner circle remains, largely, devoid of establishment types and you quickly get into a situation where the people talking don't know much and the people who do know aren't talking.

    It is well known that the FBI still does not have roughly 30,000 emails that Hillary Clinton deleted from her private server due to Clinton categorizing them as personal and not work related. We have also reported that Russia may be in possession of those emails, and according to Judge Andrew Napolitano, there is a debate going on in the Kremlin about whether or not to release them. Given that the FBI still doesn't have the emails, Arkansas Republican Senator Tom Cotton (of the US is "under-incarcerated" fame), who is a Trump supporter and also serves on the Senate Intelligence...

    NEW YORK – Ten years ago, the New York Times reported on a growing underground subculture in the black community known as Down Low, comprised largely of men who secretly engage in homosexual activity while living “straight” lives in public. It’s within that subtext that opposition researchers for Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign began investigating rumors that Rev. Jeremiah Wright was running a “matchmaking service” for members of his Trinity United Church of Christ known as the Down Low Club, which included Barack Obama. Over the past several months, WND investigators have interviewed a number of members of the church...

    In a nine-word per curiam decision, eight justices of the United States Supreme Court have revealed they are deadlocked in a 4 to 4 divide on the new immigration procedures of the Obama administration, with its executive decision to not deport the immigrant parents of children born in the United States (thus citizens) and give them legal status but less than citizenship in the process. The State of Texas, joined by 25 others states, filed a lawsuit to block this executive action, which affects between 4 and 5 million immigrants in the United States. The case was before the Supreme...
